The case for a Syndicate reboot is mounting following the emergence of new trademark filings by EA.

Superannuation spotted three new trademark filings this morning.

One of the trademarks relates to "entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game; provision of information relating to electronic computer games provided via the Internet". Interesting.

Another mentions "computer game software; downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; videogame software." The plot thickens.

In April Swedish developer Starbreeze was spotted trademarking the name Syndicate three times.

EA's name popped-up in one of the filings, suggesting the codenamed "Project RedLime" collaboration is a re-imagining of Syndicate.

EA signed Starbreeze Studios (The Chronicles of Riddick, The Darkness) in early 2008 to rework a major franchise for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Could Syndicate be it?

Syndicate was a series of 90s isometric science fiction games created by Peter Molyneux's old studio Bullfrog Productions. They were proper good, and proper bloody.
